Hi i think pityriasis lichenoid chronica can be due to excessive usuage of steriods .cronic urticaria can be due to allergic food dyes and insect stings rule out them.use of vitamin a tablet daily once and application of moisteriser along with dipsalic ointment can cure the disease.use of atarax 25 mg at night and alaspan in the morning can cure urticaria
